Notes on this piece
The work is based on the confrontation of time, verticality, horizontality, and their mutual interactions. The work unfolds through the use of a neum (a short melodic cell based on a short pattern) and the Fibonacci numeric series (1,2,3,5,8,13,34,55...), which determines the form, length, and unfolding of the piece.

The work has 2 Main sections. The first section has a more vertical and rhythmic essence, and progressively deconstructs itself not only through the intrusion of rhythmic and melodic irregularities but also through the emergence of a vertical (harmonic) element. There are several presentations of the neum. Each presentation is quick and loud, consisting of a long diminuendo from forte to piano. In each successive presentation, a predefined number of notes is removed until the next explosion. Presentation nos. 3,5,8,13,21 and 34 bring three types of changes: 1)a melodic change, with the emergence of a new sound in the neum and/or a rhythmic change, 2) a change in the number of notes removed in each presentation (8, then 5, 3, 2, 1), and 3) the appearance of a chord that is enlarged based on the same numeric sequence.

The spectrum expands, reaching a point of near noise in the 34th presentation. From this point, verticality (the combination of notes) becomes the main element, until the 2nd section.

In the second section, the vertical vs horizontal balance is reversed: the regularity that characterized the first section is now replaced by a much broader sense of space. Melodic waves previously heard in the first section, and using short parts of the neum (2, 3 or 4 sounds), are combined with new apparitions of the spectrum, finally reaching the high register and harmonicity. Sounds progressively vanish as we hear the first harmonic spectrum again.
